Rafa Benitez believes everyone at Inter must pull together as they look to bounce back from a poor run.
Benitez’s position has come under threat in recent weeks and the shock 2-1 defeat to Chievo at the weekend has further increased speculation about his future at the club.
The result left the Nerazzurri sixth in the table and Benitez admits they must turn things around before it is too late.
“We know the situation is critical with (Serie A leaders) AC Milan now nine points clear of us,” said the former Liverpool and Valencia boss.
“I have spoken to (Inter president Massimo) Moratti and to (Inter sporting director Marco) Branca.
“We all need to be united. We are all in agreement that Inter has to win these type of games because we are a strong side.”
Benitez believes he still has the backing of Moratti despite Inter’s run of just one win in seven league games.
“Is my job at risk? I am a professional, with so many years of experience,” he said.
“Do I feel I still have the president’s trust 100 per cent? Yes I do. If we win on Wednesday in the Champions League all will change.
“We know that the only way we can turn things around is to work harder.”
Asked if Benítez position was safe irrespective of Wednesday’s result, Moratti said: “Yes but we must try to get a good result because it is rather important. The coach and the squad must understand that Wednesday’s game is very important. Tired or otherwise, the game absolutely needs to be played with anger because otherwise we won’t go anywhere.
“I’m pleased to have the feeling that the team and the club have certainly not shown a lack of confidence in him,” Moratti added.
